So You Want to Live to be 100? The “No Pill” Cure for High Cholesterol
By John E Bakos MD

$14.95 U.S

Want to live to be 100? But you have high Cholesterol and nothing you do brings it down? The cure to high cholesterol and living a long life are not what you think …

In this revolutionary new booklet, John E. Bakos, MD reveals the “no-pill” cure for high cholesterol, which is associated with elevated risk of cardiovascular disease, which can include coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease. Bakos defies conventional wisdom by suggesting that high cholesterol can be reduced down to the healthy range 90mg to 140mg – and it’s so simple it will shock readers.

Stunning facts revealed in the book include:

• If heart attacks and strokes as well as peripheral arterial “disease” could be eliminated as a cause of death, our life spans could be 20-40 years longer with a huge decrease in the associated debilities.

• Cholesterol levels of 200mg in our bloodstreams are 50-percent lethal.

• With cholesterol levels of 150mg or lower, heart attacks and strokes are rare.

So how do you reduce you cholesterol below 150mg. Turn to the pages of this life-changing book and discover the “no-pill” cure for high cholesterol.

John E Bakos, MD graduated from Ohio State University in 1962. After 50-plus years of watching and participating in “the show,” so to speak, he has witnessed and studied enough pieces of the puzzle of the cholesterol-artery connection to form a recognizable picture of what we are up against with this national disease. Ultimately the information in this book will lead to the reduction and/or elimination of deaths and damages that are being seen every 10 seconds across our country from preventable heart attacks and strokes, as well as hopefully ridding people of high blood pressure.

Vengeance is Now  |  $17.95 U.S.   

by Scott D. Roberts

Enter the mind of a sick and sinister serial killer aka “The Eye”

“I placed the plastic bag over her face and squeezed at the base of her neck. She was resigned to her fate. You could almost hear the fear in her eyes. She took her last labored breath and her chest was still. Oh, the vacant stare. Yes, you’ve never really lived until you’ve seen the life leave another human being…”

A down-and-out and disgraced former police detective and P.I., Tate Holloway has turned to a life of soaking his sorrows in a bottle of Tequila, smoking weed, and turning tricks with high-class wealthy women to make a living. Balancing his empty life of surfing and keeping his secret life away from his girlfriend, Tate finds his entire world turned upside down when he’s set up, framed, and forced to go on the run for unspeakable crimes. 

Vengeance is Now is a taunt, erotic and action-packed thriller about a fallen detective whose redemption can only be found by bringing a killer to justice. Tate has to shrewdly turn the tables from being the hunted to the hunter in this heart-pounding, adrenaline rush of a thriller. Each stunning, breakneck-paced revelation brings Tate closer to the dark truth and uncovers departmental and political corruption that leads to a final showdown of good vs. evil in the race for vengeance. 

“Roberts has written a first-rate thriller. A page-turner, occupied by great characters and plenty of plot twists. An outstanding debut effort.” — Scott Disharoon, Producer, “Aurora Borealis,” “Illusion.”

By Wayne Kurtz

“If your friends and family don’t say the words ‘no way, you’re crazy’ about your goals then you have not made them big enough.”

Each New Year, we become a nation fixated on making resolutions. Did you know that 45 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions? How many of that 45 percent do you suppose keep their resolutions? Ninety percent of that 45 percent will fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions.

• Why goals are important
• How to create a goals “blueprint”
• Tips for effective time management and improved organizational skills
• How to use goal-setting tools
• Why “Goal Journaling” is important
• How others succeeded through case studies

Never Say “I Wish I Had” puts readers in charge of their goals achievement and guarantees that every reader who follows Wayne Kurtz’s tried-and-true goals program will become their own Chief Goals Officer in 30 days. This insightful, personal and revelatory program reinforces what many readers know already about the value and importance of goal setting and then shows them how to make all of their goals a reality.

Both Kirsten and Julia had been through years of grueling custody battles, and job loss and were now living on the financial edge.

This current economic slump was really putting a cramp in their life style and they had to do something about it. Julia woke up one morning and the first words out of her mouth were “Today is the first day of the rest of my life”. Enthusiastic about her new point of view on that December morning, she called her best friend Kirsten to discuss when they would start meeting to write their book.

Our Stimulus Package is a sexually charming collection of side-splitting dating stories from all over the country that are voluntarily shared by Julia and Kirsten’s close friends. This will be a book of non-fiction and any resemblance to venues, actual events, persons, places or body parts are purely coincidental.

18 Holes for Leadership | $19.95

By Nancy L. Clark

“Entertaining and educational! 18 Holes for Leadership lets you enjoy
a “round” of golf and gain a framework for success. A quick, easy read for
leaders at any level — from novice to pro.”
~ Robert B. Hirth, Jr., Executive Vice President, Protiviti, Inc.

Do You Have What it Takes to be a World-Class Leader?

18 Holes for Leadership addresses what it takes to be a leader and what
to do with it in order to be successful. Many people become managers
and even rise to high levels of management, but never become leaders.
Why? What is missing? 18 Holes for Leadership uses a game of golf as a
metaphor to help identify the factors that provide the foundation (capability)
for leadership and guides readers on what leaders must do (effectiveness)
in order to achieve results and attain unprecedented levels of success.

“Golf can be a frustrating four letter word to those of us who have tried,
and failed, to play the game well. 18 Holes For Leadership logically
defines the key components of leadership and success in an easy to
understand and fun format that defines what leaders do to be successful.”
~ Terry Burnside, SVP/General Manager Medicine Shoppe and Leader
Brands, Cardinal Health

“Well-written, a pleasure to read, and full of insights, which are readily
applicable to leaders, and would-be leaders — like golf — of all ages and
skill levels. Clark uses the golf (sport) metaphor quite well in putting
together a credible story about what it takes to be an effective leader."

University; Co-author, The Leadership Challenge, and The Truth
About Leadership


  Daughter of the Caribbean | $17.95

By Norma Jennings

Jamaica is calling me AGAIN!

Beloved Jamaica, the island of my birth, where brilliant sunshine and glistening white-sand beaches demand reverence; where the fruit is sweet and abundant; and where the people are strong, defiant and accomplished …

Daughter of the Caribbean is a love letter that pays homage to the culture and heritage of this exotic, beautiful and conflicting island paradise that is Jamaica. It is an epic story told through the eyes of a Jamaican native Olivia who was raised for years by her Jamaican grandmother Sedith on the sprawling estate of Twickenham, where the fruit trees grew plenty and the adventures were grand. The book explores the bonds of family, the value of embracing and understanding one’s heritage despite notorious ancestors, and the journey that is life.

“Life’s a battle …” And Daughter of the Caribbean explores that battle in the backdrop of tropical paradise and eternal wonder. This book is a must-read for anyone who loves stories of life, love, rich and controversial history and politics, and the bonds among family that can’t be broken.

"This setting is an enticing invitation to have a first-hand experience of Jamaica’s natural beauty and all of its spoils. I shared in all the excitement, humor, fears, sorrows, joys, losses and achievements of this colorful family, and when the last chapter came to an end I was reluctant to be severed from a world I wanted to continue wrapping myself in. I’m filled and still want more!"

- JC Lodge, Recording Artist / Song Writer, UK

Miss Fannie Mae’s Girls | $17.95 U.S.

By Larry Batchelor

Belle had not even noticed when Nettie and Joe Bamo arrived, but her silent thoughts and reflections were shattered when she heard her sister Rosalie in the front yard yelling, "Belle I'm here, where's my mama?"

“Belle where is my mama?” Rosalie repeated. “You all come on inside its cold out here” Belle replied. “I want to know where my mama is”, Rosalie yelled again impatiently.

Rosalie never stopped talking from the front yard all the way to the living room. After getting inside the house she and Marshall had intermittent bouts of grief.

There were wails coming from Rosalie, “Mama, why did you leave me? Mama, why did you have to go so soon?”

And, from Marshall came, “Mama Girl I need you. Mama Girl, how am I going to make it without you?”

“Fannie Mae Turner died on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2008. She was the
daughter of sharecroppers. She was born in a shack on a dusty, dirt road in the
backwoods of Macon County, Georgia in 1922. Fannie Mae had skin the color of red Georgia clay. On the day she was born her mother screamed, not because of the difficult childbirth, but for the mere fact that her baby girl was the color of dirt with eyes as black as coal dust.”

And so begins and eventually ends the life of Fannie Mae Turner from Macon
County, Georgia. A true native of the Deep South, Fannie Mae Turner married and
loved Henry Turner and bore five girls, Belle, Nettie, Rosalie, Christine and Elenora.
They raised their daughters very much in the same way that Fannie’s mother had
raised her — to be God-fearing, hard-working girls who knew how to be strong when called upon. Each girl was as different as her name. Belle, the oldest, was called “Lil Buck” after her grandpa Buck. Nettie, the second girl, was nicknamed “Sis.” Rosalie was called “Big Red,” because she was the same color as her mother. Christine was called “Sweetie Pie.” And, Elenora went by the name “Girlie.”

Miss Fannie Mae’s Girls is a deeply personal yet eloquently simple, charming and
irreverent story about the bonds of family, loyalty, loss and love found. Take a sweet journey into the heart of this colorful group of characters whose deep, spiritual bonds and kind, loving support were engendered in them by the great Fannie Mae Turner.
You will both laugh and cry with them, as they mourn the loss of their beloved
mother Fannie Mae only to rediscover their sense of family, place and purpose
through the marriage of Christine Turner and Horace Lee Miller. This is a story you
will take with you in your heart long after you’ve read it.
